“From drought to flooding, now the Lake Oroville Dam spillway has been compromised and in need of repair,” says H.B. “No imminent threat of the dam failing but WDR will be keeping an eye on the situation and doing its best to continuously assess the threat.”

Current incoming water to Lake Oroville: 80,000 cfs
Current outgoing flow from Lake Oroville: 10,000 cfs

  1. I read lake oroville had 190,000 cubic ft of water flood in in the last 24 hours and its releasing 40,000cubic ft every 24 hours. Saturday the emergency spillway is going to be opened.
